We’re just a few sleeps away from GO Fest 2017 and you may have looked at the robust schedule of events, only to feel overwhelmed with all the choices. Fear not; we have come up with a hit list of the best things you should do that span the depth and breadth of sport and culture and the great outdoors. So pull out your calendars and plug in the events you won’t want to miss:
Start the weekend with the boys on an adventurous wet and wild rafting ride along Green River at 9 a.m.
Fuel up at the pancake breakfast outside the Whistler Public Library before channeling your inner Middle Ages soldier or Game of Thrones warrior with some axe throwing at noon with Forged Axe Throwing in Creekside.
At 4 p.m. catch the series of films Adventure Unknown, which follow seven stories of intrepid adventurers all around the world. Then don’t miss rock legends 54-40 as they kickoff the free concert series with their energizing performance at 7:30 p.m. in Village Square.
Start the morning at 10 a.m. with a sailing clinic on Alta Lake before catching the series of short films at 4 p.m. at Maury Young Arts Centre. From water to mountain to rock to ice, the films will inspire you to get out and charge harder than you’ve ever done before. Then don’t miss breakout band The Zolas in Village Square at 7:30 p.m. Wrap up the evening with the 9 p.m. premiere showing of Under An Arctic Sky at Maury Young Arts Centre.
Catch the beach volleyball tournament at 11 a.m. at the Rainbow Park Volleyball Courts before hitting up the dazzling All British Car Show at Whistler Olympic Plaza. Don’t miss the 7 p.m. showing of Given followed by a series of short films that cover climbing, slack-lining and big mountain skiing.
No matter what you do, or where you go, make sure you take everything you’ve learned, seen, or done, and embrace a day of playing outside on Monday. We guarantee you’ll come away from the festival not only loving everything Whistler’s outdoors has to offer and inspire, but starting to plan your next outdoor adventure – wherever in the world that may take you.
